CurriculumBelleville Christian School

The ultimate purpose of the Christian education is to make disciples of Christ.

The Bible has given that authority only to the church and home. Therefore, Christian education must be carried out by biblically structured churches and Christian homes. The effort of Belleville Christian School is to educate students to become “Truly God’s People.” Through using the curriculums deeply rooted in a biblical world view, Belleville Christian School provides an atmosphere for students to learn to glorify God, be grateful for their
salvation, and come to full realization of their tasks.

The classes of Belleville Christian School are using the curriculums from Bob Jones University in the US.
